The smart formore, the concept that never was, the smart that could've been, but conceived in a bad year.
The smart brand's first attempt at US soil failed. Their idea was a crossover type of SUV called the formore, that was supposed to be smart's entry to the US market in 2007. It died a premature death and it really never made it to full concept phase. They dumped a whole lot of R&D in the formore but because of slow roadster and forfour sales, they had to pull the plug on all three before the end of 2005.
For the project, smart built several test vehicles and two versions for auto shows; one concept, one production
When they decided to pull the plug they crushed all test formores and the two show cars were sent to a Mercedes-Benz warehouse in Germany, where they sit indefinitely.
What's really neat about this is that there are only 2 formores in the world and they're both completely different. And they're working models with engines and everything so they're road ready...just in case if a certain rich man or woman were to buy them for an insane amount of money...
